Another area city places restrictions on K2 sales

By Scott Harvey

Van Alstyne – Another area city is outlawing the controversial substance K-2. The Van Alstyne City Council voted unanimously Tuesday night to ban the sale and possession of the substance within its city limits.

Within the past few weeks, the cities of Commerce and Sulphur Springs have voted to restrict the product's sale to anyone under 21, plus enact limits on the how close it can be sold within certain areas like a school or park.

The Dallas suburbs of McKinney and Allen have voted to ban the substance entirely.

That's the hope of some state legislatures, such as Florence Shapiro, of Plano, who plans to introduce a bill outlawing the product during next year's legislative session. Nine states have already done so.
